Villa Rosa Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
The food and the service here is always consistent. Very good.
First host was limiting but the followup experienced host made it very accommodating . Energy was inviting and ambiance was generous .
Excellent food and the overall mood was romantic and quiet...would definitely recommend
We were on a mini-vacation from out of town and came in for a celebratory meal after my Husband ran a marathon the day before. We were SO impressed with the wonderful, kind, service we and our toddler received. Above and beyond! The food was divine and authentic, the wine was fantastic and we were treated like we were the only ones in the room. I have been dreaming of the pasta I had, ever since. I guess I will have to buy the cookbook and try to recreate the meal, until we can get back there again. Our meal and experience were memorable and very positive! We will be back!
Excellent food. Excellent service. If I lived in Penticton I would come here often!
For a busy place, great service. Wonderful food. Personally recommend the spaghetti. Meatballs are huge and there are three, so weigh that option carefully
It was our Anniversary and we wanted to have a romantic dinner for two in a nice ambiance. Qilla Rosa filled my expectations. It was a nice touch they offered a complementary glass of sparkling wine for the occassion.
The service and the food was excellent. The desserts are made in house (except one) and were well presented and delicious. The tiramasu was one of the best we have had.
We had an amazing evening made better by our server Susy. Food was fabulous and reasonable for the quality. Definitely a GREAT restaurant. Make reservations..
The food was awesome and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely return when visiting Penticton
Lovely server and welcoming host. Old school Italian in a very comfortable setting.
We will return.
Superb service and excellent homemade food. We were visiting from out of town and were delighted with this gem of a restaurant. Will definitely return on our next visit to Penticton.
The food was fresh and delicious. ...very authentic. The service was excellent with a personal touch. The reservation system worked very well with our larger group. It was an overall joyous experience.
We enjoyed a very rememberable wedding anniversary. The staff was great as well as the meal.
The restaurant is centrally located, near several hotels, the sports arena, and casino. It has a vine covered outdoor patio for dining in addition to the restaurant. A good wine selection with some reasonably priced bottles, both local and international. Food dishes (bread with oil, grilled cheese in tomato sauce, fusilli with a mushroom sauce, veal scallopine) were mostly bland and overdone. Server was extremely OVER-attentive, returning to ask if we were ready to order several times, telling us how to read the pricing for the wine (by glass, carafe, bottle) by pointing out each area on the menu., etc. Our conversation was interrupted several times while the server "checked on us", "how was our food?", etc. We had ordered a bottle of wine but decided not to finish the remaining third at the restaurant nor have dessert (mostly due to the constant interruptions) , so we requested that the bottle be re-corked and placed in a paper bag. The server asked "if we were walking?"; when I indicated that I (a mature 65 year old female with an impeccable driving record) was driving after less than a glass of wine during 2 hours of eating, she appeared horrified and held the bottle against her chest, almost unwilling to give it to us, even though I said we were going to place it in the car trunk. Both of us were absolutely amazed at this overly familiar, rude "mothering" style of service. Neither of us were intoxicated, loud nor disturbing of the other restaurant patrons.......but we were certainly insulted! Based on the bland food, overly concerned /attentive service, we won't be returning for another "fine dining" experience.
Great staff, great food and great ambience. Staff were very knowledgeable of the menu and had great advice. Restaurant decor is like it was set in Italy itself.
Always enjoy a visit to Villa Rosa for a special occasion when in Penticton. We know the food will be good, the service attentive and the patio pleasant. Thanks, Tyler and Villa Rosa!
Food great, service was excellent, tremendous wine and wine list comfortable surroundings
A great place to dine. The food is excellent as was our server.
Overall a great dining experience with a small exception. My partner found a hair draped across his side plate which we just brushed it off as "it can happen not a big deal". Then when we got our water refilled he took a sip to get yet another hair but this time in his mouth which kind of grossed him out. As I took a bite of my main course I bit into something hard which, after examination turned out to be a small piece of plastic. We were to full to finish our meals so we got it packed up to go and when we got home and ate it the next day I was eating a roast potato and bit into something hard, this time it was a small stone perhaps from improperly washed potatoes.? Our waitress kept saying that it could have been a customers hair( which I understand ) but twice? I don't know if they were short staffed or just super busy but service was slow and had to flag someone down for more water a couple times. Despite all that we will definitely go back on our next visit as like I mentioned the food was really, really good! Perhaps an offering of a complimentary dessert or some kind of gesture would have been nice. Doug
Simple great food! Great service! Great menu we love it!
Awesome food and service
Welcomed us with a complimentary glass of champain for our anniversary!
Consistent as always. it is the consistency that keeps us going back. No surprises, just a solid menu well delivered. The staff are considerate and efficient. Having bread included with the meal is a bonus, and even more so that it is replenished! A good meal yet again.
The food and atmosphere at Villa Rosa was fabulous. Very enjoyable evening!
What a delightful place to celebrate my birthday. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Added to a wonderful day.
It was wonderful. The food was incredible and Susie made it absolutely wonderful. We were celebrating our engagement and a birthday. The complimentary Prosecco was a delightful surprise making it very special. Loved the ambience and all. Best special dinner ever.
We had excellent service with a knowledgeable server
Authentic atmosphere that transports you to Italy. A very gracious host who gives very personal attention to his guests. And some of the tastiest Italian dishes I've had the pleasure of enjoying.
The food and service was great! Very pleasantly surprised to find this jem in penticton.
We were recommended to come by our daughter as she was in the week before and she knew her dad would like the lamb. She was right he was very impressed. Owner came over and spoke which we find awesome when owners do that. Very personable. Definitely would highly recommend and we would come back next time we came to town. Service by all was top notch.
Very much enjoyed the food and the ambiance. The staff were very friendly and the food was amazing. I would definitely go there again if given the opportunity. I even bought their cookbook which says something to the quality of the food and the flavor. Very Good!!
One of the best restaurant I have ever been to. This is a real gem. Owner checks on all the tables. Service is impeccable. Food is fresh and delicious.
We went for our Anniversary dinner and it was awesome, food was outstanding. Service and ambience were great.
This was the third time I have been, as always the food was awesome.
Host was very welcoming and waitress was superb. Thank you Penticton.

Our meal was very good, could have a little more seafood in pasta dish. Service was good.
We have been celebrating our Anniversary at the Villa Rosa for over ten years!! Amazing food and service! We look forward to it every year❤️
Attended from Kelowna with friends from Alberta to celebrate wife's birthday.
Everything from the greeting when we arrived, the service, the exceptional food and goodbyes on leaving were tremendous. Very relaxing. Will be going back soon even though we have to drive from Kelowna.
Wouldn't recommend the patio - noisy cars, trucks and motorcycles.
Manager (?) on that night didn't possess the professionalism expected in this type of restaurant. Why ask about how things were going and not do our server a favor by removing the empty plates on our table?
Food was just OK - nothing memorable about anything our group ordered.
Delicious abd delightful, highly recommend. Vast wine list too
